Too old.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Hopelessly out of date. Copyright is 1995, and it shows. Modern mobile rigs, except the original IC 706 weren't invented when this book was written. Even the style of the book, what we used to call friendly or "breezy" comes across as patronizing. The anecdotes are dated, and there is too little technical content and too many war stories. There is some useful information, but it is too diffuse. ARRL should take it off the shelf, as it is obsolete.
